INTRODUCING: A Band Of Orcs

I got introduced to this group by Devin at the wonderful Team All About The Music, a World Of Warcraft-inspired death-thrash metal band called A Band Of Orcs. Imagine a more extreme version of GWAR or Lordi and that’s not too far off, they dress up in fancy costumes and take on stagenames like Gronk! and Oog Skullbasher. Yes, they are grown men.

With an EP and two singles out, there’s not much material to get your teeth into, but what’s presented is “palatable, very palatable”, quoth Monty Python. They’ve done a cover of Celtic Frost’s “Procreation (Of The Wicked)”, which is fairly amusing to listen to. The newest single, “Wyrd Of The Winter Wolf”, is available as a taster below, the single itself comprising also of the other single, “Hall Of The Frozen Dead”. Enjoy.
